Glittering diamond teardrop

The Pear Shape diamond is a fancy cut that is a variation of the traditional Round Brilliant Cut. In a sense it is a combination of the Oval and Marquise Cut because it has one rounded end and a tapering point on the other end, resembling a glittering teardrop. Pear Shape diamonds have good proportions that refract light well because the faceting releases the natural brilliance of the gemstones. This cut allows a range of cutting styles so that the teardrop shape can be wider, slimmer or cut to perfect proportions based on personal choice and preferences making them ideal for any type of jewelry.

Ideal for all jewelry types

The diamond is always worn with the narrow tip pointing towards the person that wears it. The unique shape of the Pear Shape makes it suitable for a variety of jewelry. However, most people prefer Pear Shape diamonds to be set in a ring or in a pair of diamond earrings. These diamonds have different proportions depending on how they are cut, and a slightly elongated Pear Shape creates a subtle slimming effect on the fingers. Pear Shapes also make for great shoulder stones that complement the shape of the center stone. Alternatively, they can also be set in a cluster around a larger diamond.

Picking the perfect cut

A very important aspect of a good Pear Shape diamond is the symmetry. The tapered point should line up exactly with the apex of the rounded end. The upper and lower curves of both the left and right side should be perfectly symmetrical with no straight edges. The length-to-width ratio of a classic Pear Shape diamond is between 1.40-1.70. The preferred shape of the diamond will depend on personal choice and the type of jewelry it will be set in. A narrow Pear Shape is more beautiful for dangle earrings and a wider diamond may be preferred as a solitaire in a diamond ring.
